Colour Challenge #16

I was very sad to miss #15...I love those colours too, so I think I'll have to give them a whirl one day soon. I'm glad I didn't miss this one, though. Celery...my favourite! I've also used a new Stamp set "One of a Kind", and some new Silver Hodgepodge:

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaThe colours are Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla. I've used Spring Silhouettes Designer Series Paper, and also Celery and Pumpkin Prints Papers. I stamped the large flower on Pumpkin Prints in Pumpkin Pie ink, and cut it out. I then stamped it again on Soft Sky cardstock in Soft Sky ink and cut the centre part out. I used the stamp and co-ordinating punch to make the small flowers. The large one has a green Rhinestone brad and the small ones have Pumpkin eyelets in the centres. The scallop edge has been made with the Corner Rounder punch (guard removed). I did the multicoloured sentiment by first inking the whole stamp in Soft Sky, and used a clean cotton bud (Q-tip) to remove ink from the areas I didn't want it, and then coloured those areas with a Celery and Pumpkin marker. I punched it out with the Designer Label punch, which made framing it with the Hodgepodge really easy.
Let me know what you think!
